Synopses & Reviews
The quiet suburban town of Hampstead is threatened by two horrors.
One is natural. The hideous, unstoppable creation of man's power gone mad.
The other is not natural at all. And it makes the first look like child's play.
"Unspeakable horror." Los Angeles Times
"Straub's effects are quite spectacular....I was fairly awed by some of the more nightmarish scenes in Floating Dragon." The New York Times
"Deliciously imaginative." San Francisco Chronicle
"Buy it today. Anything by Straub is worth several thousand John Sauls and a million V.C. Andrewses." The Philadelphia Inquirer
"A book that positively bubbles with invention, jammed with characters, color, events, hackle-raising twists of fate, horrific monsters, terrifying nightmares, and a reality that shimmers and shifts as much as the noxious steam from a witch's cauldron." Book World
The quiet suburban town of Hampstead is threatened by two horrors one is natural, the unstoppable creation of man's power gone mad. The other is not natural at all and makes the first look like child's play. Includes a new Introduction by the author. Reissue.
